Kirill Troussov continues his Live Series with one of the crowning jewels of the violin repertoire, Mozart’s Violin Concerto No. 5 in A Major, K. 219, known as the “Turkish”.
The concerto reflects Mozart’s mastery of form, and his ability to create hugely engaging and expressive works for the violin within the classical concerto tradition.
The lively and spirited Rondo in the third movement features a theme with a characteristically Turkish sound, with elements inspired by Turkish music. During Mozart’s time, Turkish music and themes were very much in vogue, with composers often incorporating these exotic elements into their compositions to add a touch of novelty and excitement.

Troussov’s live recording features the MAV Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Gábor Takács-Nagy.
